How can teachers structure a learning environment built on interest, inquiry and collaboration?

On Wednesday, April 15 from 9-10 am PT (12-1 pm ET), Don Wettrick shared about his Innovation Class at Noblesville High School, just outside Indianapolis, IN. The Innovation Class offers students an opportunity to  work on projects that interest them and collaborate, not only with fellow students, but with experts all over the world. Don discussed with Howard Rheingold how the class time is utilized to brainstorm, collaborate, and walked through students’ individual ideation phases and how, most importantly, it is a class for the students to work on projects they find meaningful.

This webinar was part of an April 2015 series titled Connected Learning in the Classroom: Conversations from the Field with Howard Rheingold, Creator of Social Media Classroom. Check out all the details at http://bit.ly/CLClassroom
